for years in the economy, and even our environment. as increased use of natural gas has reduced co2 emissions in the united states in 1992 levels. since 1990, the industry has invested more than $252 billion in improving the environmental performance of our products, our facilities, and our operations. between 2000-2010, the amount of industry investment for technologies to reduce greenhouse gases was $71 billion. compare that to the $43 billion spent by the federal government over that same time. compared to all other industries combined, which were just slightly larger than what our industry invested. u.s. refiners have invested more than $137 billion since 1990 in technologies to produce even cleaner fuels and meet the growing variety of state and federal mandates. it complete transitions compared to gasoline is estimated to have resulted in the reduction of tailpipe emissions by cars and light duty trucks, the equivalent of taking 164 million cars off the road. and through increased efficiency, we are doing much more with less. america uses about half as much energy today to pro
business. the combination of policies that are not hostile to business and an environment which actually welcomes new businesses and new jobs is working. it is clear. in a competitive world, policies matter. companies have choices. job-creators have choices. that is why our work is far from done. that is why a top priority must be to continue new jersey's record of excellence in education and to fix problems where we are failing. in higher education, the task force led with skill by former governor tom kean has helped us develop strategies for making new jersey's institutions more competitive. we need to turn new jersey's universities -- including rutgers -- from good to great, because that will help us keep more talented new jersey students in new jersey and will strengthen the link between higher education and high quality jobs. at the heart of these reforms we need, of course, is the plan to make sure that new jersey's critically important medical and health sciences institutions remain world class. by merging rutgers and umdnj in the north and rowan and umdnj's stratford campus in th
and suing each other? >> yeah, not suing each other, but in a very, messy policy environment, and i just want to add one thing to this, and i don't know whether we disagree on this, but you see this more and more frequently that the administration, precisely because it knows that congress won't do anything, makes policy by official announcements of law enforcement, so we're going to have our own de facto dream act which congress refuses to enact by administrative law enforcement. that's very clear example of the dynamics here. you might see the same thing in drug enforcement, not going to enforce it, period, because congress won't enact a law to that effect. i find that sort of to go much beyond the ordinary exercise of administrative and executive discretion in law enforcement. it's policymaking by law enforcement which is to my mind a very, very -- in the teeth of congressional statutes to the contrary, i there are real policy difficulties with that, but there are also real constitutional problems with that. it's just sort of one more sign off dysfunction. >> not the way things are sup
on some gun measures. what's clear here is the political environment in washington, we've seen over the last several months, how it's been very difficult to get movement on anything that goes down to the wire for lawmakers to come up with some sort of bipartisan agreement. what the vice president is spelling out here, is floating, essentially he's talking about the reality of the current political climate here in washington. yes, there are things that can be done legislatively. but if those things can't be done, then the president is willing to act alone. why? because he says it's time to act no now. >> i want to make it clear that we are not going to get caught up in the notion, unless we can do everything we'll do nothing. it's critically important that we act. >> in addition to these meetings that you spelled out earlier that the vice president is holding today, yesterday he also met with some faith leaders. they talked about the moral imperative to act quickly. he also had a conference call with governors, other stated and local officials across the country. they're really tryin
contracts, for fostering a lot of the corruption in the country. so this is the environment in which president obama and president karzai will be meeting, trying to hammer out some agreement. on the other hand, president karzai would probably be well served by a larger u.s. presence in afghanistan because the more u.s. troops you have there, the more afghan soldiers they're going to train, the better equipped the afghan force is going to be. so again, this is going to be a really tough set of negotiations to see where that number falls. i can tell you, just in the last day or a couple days, i'm hearing more and more that that 6,000 figure is way more likely than that 10,000 figure. >> i suppose either way, numbers of troops is one thing, amounts of money is another. afghan military we've helped bill up cost way more than the afghan government is able to afford, it's billions of dollars still have to go in. >> reporter: yeah. they're owing to have downsize the military. they were building up the afghan military to sort of push back the taliban. but it was always clear that at some poi
to live in that stressful environment. >> bill: you needed to get out of there to clean up? >> that's what ended up happening. i have had the longest period of sobriety since leaving. >> bill: how did you get off? >> i went to rehab. but i went to many rehabs. how did i stay off is more the question. >> bill: okay, go. >> well, i got married. had a family. had children. i have relationships that are more meaningful in my life today like my cousin chris, than the superficial relationships that i spent most of my time nurturing polit. >> bill: did you go like he did into a structure into a crew this is what you have to do? >> to the best evidence based crossing anyive behavior which is 12 step program. deal with it every single day. >> bill: the book, recover to live, if anybody out there has a problem or knows people who do. check this out. gentlemen, would appreciate you coming. in did you a noble thing. >> appreciate it. >> bill: bernie goldberg on the ethics of printing the names of legal gun owners in the newspaper. berne is is next. did you know wh heartburn, it's tolate to take prilos
puts climate change atop the threats. will the environment finally become a legislative priority? we'll discuss that just ahead. what are you doing? nothing. are you stealing our daughter's school supplies and taking them to work? no, i was just looking for my stapler and my... this thing. i save money by using fedex ground and buy my own supplies. that's a great idea. i'm going to go... we got clients in today. [ male announcer ] save on ground shipping at fedex office. humans. even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. at liberty mutual insurance, we understand. that's why our auto policies come with accident forgiveness if you qualify, where your rates won't go up due to your first accident, and new car replacement, where, if you total your new car, we give you the money for a new one. call... to talk to an insurance expert about everything else that comes standard with our base auto policy. and if you get into an accident and use one of our certified repair shops, your repairs are guaranteed for life. call... to switch, and you c
. what sort of environment are we looking at in terms of what assad might do next? >> it is extremely chaotic and unpredictable. because of the internationalization, much has been said this is part of war. with the money coming into it and the weapons, money from the gulf country to the rebels. it is a regional conflict. the fighting is taking place and has regional complications. >> chemical weapons. i believe his statement is he said earlier he is alluding to the chemical weapons and said it could involve u.s. troops saying you have to keep the possibility that if there is a peaceful transition and international organizations get involved that they might ask for assistance in that situation. so defense secretary paneta discussing troops and the weapons. >> for u.s. and israel, they hinted at the fact that they would use force if they needed to ensure them is it falling into the hands of people that could be dangerous. dictators use chemical weapons. in a moment of desperation if this regime feels its back is against the wall and time is running out it may resort to the weapons. >> h
around? >> i believe the atmosphere has changed. the environment u i think there's a good chance that we can push a positive agenda forward. if this doesn't do it, if this newtown tragedy doesn't do it, i'm not sure what will. we just need to search our hearts and our souls and ask if there's not more we can do to prevent this sort of thing. and i think most mirns sense that. most americans are willing to think about some new ways of approaching this. of course, we need some political leadership and some leaders to encourage us to come together on this. >> congressman, you're from north carolina and polling says that the public is understanding it is moving toward more of a sensible gun control kind of country. but what about your colleagues in the congress? are you hearing or sensing any movement there? one of their colleagues was shot and we didn't see any movement there. why should we feel something would be different this time? >> well, i have to say that congress is more polarized and more stuck on talking points than i've ever seen in my time there. but i do believe if you just sto
things. carbon tax anything dealing with the environment, climate change, i would be surprised. if he's going to cause the freak out with the executive order of gun control, that takes up so much oxygen, and you can only have so many of those freaks outs, and he can't do it seven or eight times. >> john: i think america has seen enough g.o.p. freak outs. >> they want to do something about climate change, but it's only when the economy is humming well when we ask companies to cut down on emissions. but right now there is no room to maneuver on this at all. >> john: getting the cab cabinet nominees confirmed, gun control where is he the most vulnerable on? >> i think they're doing this small incremental attack him on everything trying to bog him down on the simplest things which cabinet nominees used to be automatic. they decided well, we're going to attack, attack, attack, and make him use up capital. i don't think they have a grand strategy. i don't think they're looking down the road six, eight months, this is where we'll set our trap. they made it clear from 2009 we'll obstruct ever
this election for you in a tough environment. hold your noses, vote for me even if you're not 100%, and i can win the white house. that's how bill clinton won in 1992. he took on a ton of liberal constituencies, but because the democratic brand was damaged in '92, he was able to distance himself from it to help democrats. >> much like the republican brand now. >> exactly. >> look, let me -- erin? >> yes, roland. >> last i checked, criticizing congress is not going to somehow hurt you with the american people. so governor christie is frankly walking on -- like jesus walking on water criticizing republicans and democrats in congress. but here's the other piece you have to keep in mind. we're four years away. this whole notion of what's going to happen, so many things could very well happen. but if chris christie is able to reach out to grassroots folks, he's all about trying to appeal to republicans in congress, republican governors. it's about appealing to grassroots people. if he's able to show that kind of enthusiasm, that kind of energy, that's actually going to drag other people along. >>
, that it would be a much safer environment? >> i -- i absolutely -- i wouldn't consider carrying one if i didn't feel like i could do it safely. >> but what if you had a parent who objected to it? what position would that put you in? >> well, in the state of utah, a parent doesn't have to know about it. teachers can carry a firearm and nobody ever -- they've been doing it for 12 years. i've found out more and more about teachers that do. and employee -- >> the teachers have had guns in schools for 12 years in utah? >> yes, yes. it's been legal to do that for 12 years. >> and parents haven't known about it? >> right. you don't have to tell if you're a concealed weapon holder. >> do you think parents have a right to know? for instance, if my child was in your classroom, do you think that i would have a right to know that there is a firearm in that classroom? >> well, if -- if -- i personally would feel okay with any of the teachers, teachers i know, any teach they're i've ever met. they have the -- >> but i'm talking about the parents. >> right, right. >> i want to focus. the parents are droppin
, first the committee on the environment and pickup works. and then, more importantly the committee on finance. you know, i could maybe tell the governor some more stories about how i pushed through the biggest tax increase in history 20 years ago, maybe entertain him with some of the funny stuff that happened on the senate floor when the republicans were not half as crazy as they are now. and then beg the governor to appoint me as john kerry's successor in the senate. my point, basically, experience matters. and in the overnight polling, america spoke, spoke clearly in favor of a senator o'donnell. in a poll we conducted on our website i now have a huge lead. a huge lead over anyone else to be appointed senator from massachusetts. 40% want barney frank. only 4% want oscar winner and current oscar contender ben affleck to take time off from living the dream to cast some votes in the senate for a couple of months. and as i stared at the polling today, 51% supported me. as i stared at those results, refreshing the refresh button, as the hundreds of votes were cast i reached for the ph
, they act like steroids in our environment, and they amplify everything, and they make heat waves more intense, they make the drought that still grips 61% of this country, makes it more intense. that drought that we saw last year, we're dealing with this year, the low levels in the mississippi river, that's going to go into next year. part of the problem is we're not having enough precipitation come down, not enough snowfall and rain to help alleviate that drought. >> what about the ice melt and effects of -- i know you've been to greenland and all over the globe, really, to witness the effects on animal life and ultimately on our own weather systems. >> it affects everything. they are seeing the ice melt in greenland faster than they ever anticipated. it is happening much faster than scientists ever expected, and that's one of the many alarming things. the other thing about having warmer weather, while you and i enjoy it because we don't have to put on heavy boots, scarves, gloves, all of that, it changes our ability to grow things. we are seeing growing zones in the united states mig
environment. >> right. i think that also to bring back to the other question, and bring back to my state, back to new jersey where he is the governor. >> and seton hall where you teach, and you guys educated him. >> and seton hall law school, and the best law school in the country, absolutely, but in the state, when you talk about the bench of democrats the reality is that we do have great folks out there who would like to be governor. and right now, we have a governor who is pop youer lat the moment, but when we go out to remind people everyday that this is the guy who thinks that raising the minimum wage from $7.50 to $8.50 is too much, and governor who believes that he should be cutting back and in the letter, perfect, cutting back in women's health care and cut, cutting, and saying ing that we can't have taxes on millionaires when people are suffering. when we have unemployment way above the national rate, and there is a record that he has that is absolutely antithetical to what we believe in this state, and harsh against the working families and against same-sex marriage, and games what t
in our urban environments and yes, under these circumstances where somebody goes in and shoots up a movie theater or shoots up a school. let's take the steps that make the most sense today. i had a great conversation yesterday with vice president biden. and i know he is preparing his recommendations to the president. and i don't want to get into the details of the discussion, but he's got this down pretty well. he understands what we need to do to make it less likely that these things are going to happen in our cities and towns and these mass murders could be limited at least going into the future if some common-sense things are taken. the magazine thing is very big. >> wes. >> and it seems like a large part of the issue as well is there are actually laws that are sitting on the becomes, laws that are supposed to be enforced by atf and federal authorities that they have not had the capacity to be able to enforce. where does that fall into the larger conversation as well, and what can states and municipalities do to actually enforce what's there right now, but we have been woefully insuffi
environment. the food is brought to them. so they actually harm the stability of the dog. dogs love to work for what he has. that's why i suggest exercised discipline, that affects your body, mind and heart. >> this is all your philosophy. it's building on your -- it's less about a formula, but more than philosophy -- >> the excuse, i believe. >> 43 years of knowledge that i -- people want to know. what do i do with a barking dog. here it is. page whatever it is. people want solutions. people want it quick. >> i hope thunder is not listening here. the issue of stupid dogs. what about dogs who eat clothing? hypothetically. >> hypothetically. who like eat, say, my daughter's under wear. perverted -- >> they don't have a proper outlet. they do behaviors that appear stupid to people. >> is it because he's a apartment dog? >> it's because he doesn't have the proper challenge, like sheep herding dogs live in the city, they have a tendency to go after bikes and kids and things. they don't have the proper outlet. >> what's the proper outlet for dogs that eat stupid things. >> i need to follow this.
. do it again. do it again. do it again. >> i'm focused with professionals in a controlled environment. to my surprise, lou describes this as a the pussy cat of weapons. >> what'd you think about shooting that? >> reporter: i have to agree with lou, it's a very gentle gun. >> it is. >> reporter: my city has lots of police and lots of gun laws. as a civilian, i can't carry a firearm here. lou, a former cop, can, and never leaves home without one. his concern -- >> they're legislating laws that do not impact the criminal element. in other words, the only people that obey the law are law-abiding citizens. >> reporter: the aurora movie theater shooter used three firearms, one a shotgun similar to this. a single cartridge, multiple pellets, maximum damage. >> you can smell the powder, too. >> absolutely. >> reporter: i'm torn between fascination and fear. i understand self-protection and competitive sport but gun crime is a reality in my city. >> i look at people as being evil, you know? i've never seen a gun jump up on its own and shoot someone. >> reporter: so i change my scenario. if i l

to sort of build a better environment for consumers, dr. sachs, where is the consumer today on being treated fairly by the banks, being given clear information, being not put in situations where they're going to go under water like still so many americans are with their mortgages? >> well, i think we're all confused. >> have any of them improved? >> i think there's probably a little improvement. i think elizabeth war knoren is going to make a big difference because she's going to be watching absolutely. i think the truth is the bankers still run the show in washington as well as on wall street. the thing about bailing out banks, even if you had to bail out the financial system, you don't have to bail out the bankers. and that's where they didn't know how to draw the line. and i think what you said, joe, is absolutely right. the campaign contributions have been the focus on both parties. this time they went wildly for the republican side because it's true. you do the slightest thing, it's indignation. you only gave us hundreds of billions of dollars of bailout. how dare you say a word
environment. i have been in a lot of play-off games, richard. this is one of the best i have seen. i think that has to do in large part to the fact that, you know they haven't had a play-off game in well over a decade. this was a team that was 3 and 6. they needed today reevaluate for next year. there are a lot of positives there. they had some fantastic pieces with morris and rg3 but the environment was at the same time that you have a young man whose career you don't want to jeopardize and tarrant williams fantastic but they did not protect him the second half as well. they couldn't run and you have a guy like kirk cousins who has been terrific when given the opportunity. a lot of people were calling for shanahan's head. whether it's fear or not i don't know. >> that's interesting because i was watching at home and following on twitter. there were a lot of comments from people saying he's got to come out. he's got to come out. >> yeah. >> especially whether they were up 14 to nothing why bother drafting a guy like curt cousins who has been very effective when
